Birthday quilts

 Now I have my very own sewing room I find I am much more productive, even more so now I  have good heating in there, I can sew til all hours. My mother in law had her birthday this month and as she is always doing special things  for me I thought I would surprise her with a quilt. I would have loved to see her  face when she opened it but as they live in Victoria I had to post it.
 She does love it and I'm so pleased. I used the tumbler block and this quilt turned out so pretty.
 My sister also had her 40th Birthday this month so I wanted to make her a quilt to, Kim isn't really into "homemade stuff" as she calls it but she said she loves her quilt, she sent me photos of it all set up on her spare bed. Kim lives in Cairns so they don't really need quilts but I wanted to give her something special just from me.
 When I wasn't quilting I was stitching this project by Helen Stubbings as a sample for work, It was a nice project to do.
 Then I wanted to make something for me so I started this beautiful butterfly pattern from Fig tree quilts and I'm going to make a table runner.

I love it.

I hope you are sewing lots of things to,  Have a wonderful week.

I'm totally gobsmacked! How do you work so fast? Are you taking anything? Is it legal and if so where can I get some? ;o))
Love the tumbler quilt bet your mum-in-law does too. The quilt you gave your anti homemade sister is super gorgeous... nothing shop bought could come close to that. As for the butterflies... I've been wanting to start one for ages so I'll be watching your progress. Beautiful stitchery....
Sorry for being so 'wordy' it's your fault for getting me all excited! :o))

Hi Leanne, wow what a gorgeous post of great sewing!
The quilts are wonderful, love them both. I am sure your MIL will really enjoy hers.
The table runner is coming along beautifully too - all this sewing must be the benefit of having your own space in which to sew & create, love it!!
